From the specs i've read on this camera, it does not record sound in video clips taken.
The FE180 and FE190 do record sound.
Sorry for the bad news.

The lens need to be replaced or repaired. It is not fully extending. It may be that one or more of the plastic gears or plastic rods that hold the gears in place, are broken. I repaired two plastic rods in my lens, by drilling holes for new plastic rods,(I cut plastic rods from a plastic toilet bowl chain!!! It fit inside the gears perfectly), and super glue the rods in place. Replaced gears, put camera back together and BAM in worked! Nothing like a perfectly working refurbished rig job. Camera takes great pictures to this day.

The FE-170 is not equipt with microphone for sound with video. Sorry. The only fix is to buy a different camera.Some with sound are:Olympus FE-190, FE-230, most Stylus brands and newer FE model cameras.

The camera is an autoconnect camera. There are no drivers needed if you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista. The camera should immediately be recognized when connected to the computer. If you need photo editing software then you can go to www.olympusamerica.com and click on software downloads and download the free version of Olympus Master 2.
